Does Medicare cover varicose vein treatment?
Medicare is accepted at La Jolla Vein Care. Medicare will typically cover a consultation, diagnostic ultrasound and varicose vein treatment if it is considered medically necessary.
To be considered medically necessary and not cosmetic, the individual must meet certain criteria:
1) The vein condition must cause symptoms that are lifestyle altering and interfere with activities of daily living.
2) The individual has experienced complications of their vein condition such as leg ulceration, bleeding from a varicose vein or phlebitis
3) The patient has worn medical grade compression stockings for at least 6 weeks
